Big School Player of the Year: Kevin Cope, North Allegheny

Written by: on Friday, December 31st, 2010

North Allegheny fielded a dominant defensive unit in 2010, and really, the player of the year award could have been given to that entire unit as a whole. The Tigers enjoyed a dominant defensive line, steady linebackers and a productive defensive secondary en route to winning their first PIAA championship since 1990.

Cope finished the season with an impressive 159 tackles (102 solo – 64.1 percent of his season tackle total) – 6.5 sacks (for 50 yards lost), forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles, intercepted one pass, deflected two others and recorded a safety. Cope was North Allegheny’s leading tackler, averaging 9.9 tackles per contest and posted 11 games of 10+ tackles, including six of NA’s seven post-season contests.

In post-season play, Cope tallied 73 tackles and four sacks. He was part of a North Allegheny defensive unit (including reserves) that held nine of 16 opponents to seven points or less and allowed an average of 7.8 points per game, including four shutouts.

    So good to see Kevin get some recognition. He played one hell of a season and is one hell of a player.

    Great to see some love for Kevin Cope.

    He had an outstanding season – was often the best LB on the field – but was rarely mentioned.

    He played a good part of the season with a bum hand (broken or whatever).

  3. Steve Ferringer says:

    Very well stated; NA had a truly dominant defense and Kevin Cope was the heart of that unit. He led a group of young men who played great as a unit and shut down some of the best running games in the state. A solid pick as I’m sure you had difficulty selecting among Justin Haser (DE), Rob Kugler (DE), Matt Steinbeck (S) as well as Cope (LB) for your Player Of the Year Award.
